Scope and Content The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Piraeus: panorama".
Notes Latest date based on the probable inclusion in the 1897 slide catalogue. Along the bottom of the negative are locations of mountains seen in the background of the panorama and the Inlet κωφός λ'ιμην and the Promontory Eitioneia. Notes were added 1) after κωφός λ'ιμην: "[1909 now filled up or nearly so]" and 2) "Piraeus [1909. Now greatly extended by the addition of an outer harbour, which has caused the abolition of the κωφός λ'ιμην, and other changes.]"
